  • Top Hat Creation - Circa 1951

    February 9, 2011 by Britex Fabrics


    The amazing folks at the British media company British Pathe (founded in 1902) present a preview of a video newsreel film on making top hats, circa 1951. The short clip depicts various steps in the hat-making process including laying out cloth until it is taut and the formation of forming a cylindrical shape. We love the depiction of craftsmanship, and the pride each milliner takes in their contribution to the finished top hat.
